Metabolism of the black bear under simulated denning conditions.

Author information

Institute of Arctic Ecophysiology, Churchill, Canada.


Oxygen consumption of three black bears (Ursus americanus) under simulated denning conditions are reported. The results indicate that metabolic rate in large mammals can be significantly reduced during natural starvation. The paper summarizes data on the lowest and average metabolic rate of black bears during simulated denning.
